What is the definition of a polycarbonate roofing system?

A polycarbonate roofing system is a flexible roofing system constructed of polycarbonate sheets of various types. These inventive sheets come in a range of colors, textures, and forms, each with its own set of applications and objectives. These polycarbonates have shown to be a great alternative to glass because they offer about the same clarity as glass but with more advantages such as weight, strength, durability, and impact resistance.

What are the benefits of having a polycarbonate roofing system installed?


Polycarbonates are extremely robust sheets with 200 times the impact resistance of glass. Because there is no risk of cracking or fracture, this unique quality makes the complete polycarbonate roofing system extremely sturdy and long-lasting.

Comfort for working

In terms of handling, shipping, cutting, drilling, and construction, polycarbonates are quite simple to work with. Polycarbonate also has the advantages of being lightweight and flexible, in addition to its durability and strength. When all of these properties of lightness, flexibility, and impact resistance are integrated in one material, it is unquestionably easier to carry, move, and handle. Furthermore, these sheets are so simple to cut and drill with only the most basic tools that any DIY project can be completed by anyone. Furthermore, unlike glass, no dangerous or toxic shards are formed when cutting or drilling.

UV Protection

A layer of UV resistance is applied on one side of the polycarbonate sheet. This prevents the sun’s damaging UV rays from entering the structure. As a result, only a sufficient amount of sunshine reaches the structure. This is the primary reason why polycarbonate greenhouses are so popular.


If the correct colors and textures are applied, polycarbonates can improve the structure’s aesthetic. Polycarbonates come in a wide range of colors and textures, so you may choose one that complements or contrasts with the rest of the building for added visual appeal.
